On April 20, 1895, Crunden-Martin Woodenware Company (Crunden-Martin) (plaintiff) wrote to Fairmount Glass Works (Fairmount) (defendant) asking for the lowest price at which Fairmount would sell ten car loads of Mason jars. On April 23, 1895, Fairmount sent a letter with a “quote” of prices “for immediate acceptance.” The next day, April 24, 1895, Crunden-Martin sent a telegram asking that the order be entered as specified in the quotation. Fairmount responded that same day stating that the order could not be filled. Crunden-Martin sued Fairmount alleging that a binding contract had been formed when Crunden-Martin sent the telegram accepting the prices in Fairmount’s April 23, 1895 letter. Fairmount argued in defense that a binding contract had not been formed by Crunden-Martin’s April 24, 1895 telegram, and consequently Fairmount had the right to decline to fill the order. The trial court entered judgment for Crunden-Martin, and Fairmount appealed.
